Experimental bounds on the electric dipole moment (EDM) of the electron and other EDMs are already below predictions of some simple standard model extensions. An experiment, with the careful control of systematic effects, has been designed to discover or rule out an electron EDM as small as a factor of 100 below the present limit. Collaborators working on this experiment have previously completed and published four electron EDM experiments, including the first to use laser-cooled atoms. The experiment will be run at TRIUMF.
